NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH SCORES SCHERVIER PAVILION IN FIRST QUINTILE OF NURSING HOME QUALITY POOL
Skilled Nursing Facility Scores highest in Orange County
WARWICK, NY (January 23) – The New York State Department of Health recently announced the release and posting on its Website of the 2013 Nursing Home Quality Pool (NHQP) scores.
The Quality Pool was comprised of four areas: quality measures, patient satisfaction, compliance and avoidable hospitalizations. The Department assessed each nursing home on performance in all areas as compared to their peers. Schervier Pavilion in Warwick, NY was the only nursing home in Orange County that scored in the first and highest quintile.
The New York State Nursing Home Quality Pool is a $50 million budget-neutral pool. Under the payment methodology eligible nursing homes contribute to the funding and the pool money is redistributed to the nursing homes based on performance.
Schervier Pavilion, a member of the Bon Secours Charity Health System, is a 120-bed skilled nursing facility licensed by the New York State Department of Health. Dedicated to the highest standard of health care excellence, its full range of services, such as its therapeutic recreational program, are designed to respond to each individual’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
In addition to quality long term care services, Schervier Pavilion also offers a wide range of short-term (sub acute) care needs. Its sub acute services include IV therapy, Rehabilitation therapy and wound care. These services afford residents the ability to recuperate for a short time in the sub-acute unit of the facility and then return to the community where they can resume a more independent life. In some cases, they can then enter Schervier Pavilion’s Day-At-A-Time, an innovative medical adult day care program that provides nursing services, medication administration, ongoing evaluations, and stimulating activities tailored to each individual’s needs and abilities.
“We are extremely proud of the every day service the members of our staff perform to achieve this high score,” said Schervier Pavilion Administrator Lisa Brocky. “We always strive to give our residents the quality of life and level of dignity they deserve.”
